54.7 hours per week

As it was recenlty reported on Science Careers, a survey realized by the Global Young Academy (GYA) gives fresh empirical support to aspects of the young scholars' career  that most of us already feel and know by first-person experience.

If the figure of 54.7 work hours per week (during the academic term) may be more reminiscent of pre-Trade Unions labor market conditions than of 21st century academia, the study highlights also elements in the scholar's early career that make it a distinctive, rewarding experience.
